May 2017 RRC CLUB SHIPMENT (Ships the week of April 24, 2017)
Amapola Creek by Richard Arrowood has been built on a solid foundation of making wines of "quality without compromise”. But there is no resting on one’s laurels, even after a career that started in 1965 and continues 50+ years later.
Our May 2017 Richards Reserve Club selection features Amapola Creek Petite Sirah from the famous Monte Rosso red soil vineyard.
Very deep purple-black, the 2014 Petite Sirah Monte Rosso Vineyard (50 cases) is scented of warm blueberries and plum preserves, with hints of spice cake and fragrant earth. Medium-bodied, the palate gives a good amount of lively black fruits with a pleasant earthy edge and chewy finish. 90+ Points – Robert Parker Wine Advocate, February 2017, RRC Exclusive $50
The 2013 Petite Sirah Monte Rosso Vineyard is a tiny production (50 cases) of 100% Petite Sirah and realistically priced. This wine offers terrific lead pencil notes intermixed with camphor, asphalt, blueberry and blackberry liqueur. The wine is full-bodied, super-rich and extracted, but has no hard edges, which is somewhat surprising, given its richness. It should drink well for 20-30 years as well. 93+ Points – Robert Parker Wine Advocate, March 2016, RRC Exclusive $50
